Brilliant Brimstone Molly spots are clutch on Valorant’s Bind map

Brimstone’s Molly ability is one of the best at denying space in all of Valorant, and a new clip contains a wealth of information on how to use it on Bind’s A Reactor Site.

The Molly ability is basically CSGO’s Molotov in Valorant – after it hits the ground it produces an area of fire on the ground that will damage enemies if they’re caught in it or walk into the flames. It can also do a great job at denying players the chance to defuse the spike.

Including Molly, Brimstone’s kit would be familiar to any CS:GO veteran.

For Bind’s A Site, which is arguably the more popular of the two to push, Reddit user ‘technomanxy’ put together a nice compilation filled with info on the best spots to Molly and deny the enemy team an easy defuse.

The first is for the spot just inside the L-shaped boxed on the A point leading out from Showers. You can just shoot out the door at the Spike, but where’s the fun in that? Instead, you could shoot it through the hole in the Shower ceiling, that we didn’t even know existed until this video, to get the same effect.

The next one also uses the opening, but by aiming just a little to the left of the first shot, you can drop it right on the ground in front of the truck, another popular spot for Spike planting.

Finally the last spot shown in the clip puts the Molly right next to the truck on the attacker’s side, which can also be done from the alleyway, but the spot shared by technoman is definitely a bit safer.

All you have to do is make your way up to the high ground just between the Alley and Showers, then aim up at the corner of the building closest to you and let it fly.

Viper could also use these spots to send out her Snake Bite.

Other heroes, like Viper and Sage, could also use these spots for their Snake Bite and Slow Orbs, but Brimstone might be the best bet at denying defenders from getting to the spike.

One important thing to note is that Molly won’t do enough damage to kill a fully armored up player, and it won’t last long enough to completely stop defenders, but combined with a little bit of patience and some decent aim, it can definitely help you take the round in style.

Cloud9 TenZ reveals big Valorant changes he wants from future updates

Cloud9’s TenZ has become a behemoth in the Valorant world, so when he speaks people listen. A recent Twitter thread to Riot Games has shown several game features that need fixed.

Former CS:GO pro turned Valorant legend Tyson ‘Tenz’ Ngo has always openly expressed his opinions on Riot Games’ flagship FPS – be them positive or negative.

On a recent stream the player effectively ended the Phantom versus Vandal debate when he realised that the Vandal’s hip-fire is better than the former.

In a recent Twitter thread though, TenZ has challenged Valorant’s developers to make some essential adjustments to the game’s interface, picking up on this hip-fire accuracy issue once more.

TenZ is a Valorant legend so when he talks, people listen.

Adjustments that TenZ thinks Riot need to make to Valorant

In an extended Twitter rant about the current state of the game, TenZ had a lot to say about hip-fire, fire range, and ziplines.

TenZ’s first bone of contention is the accuracy associated with hip-fire. When running with rifles, the C9 legend claims that he can hits shots far too easily, and that to make the game more realistic and less overpowered Riot needs to adjust this.

The second part of his Tweet goes on to discuss the Classic. Noticing that when right-clicking and jumping the Classic seems to one-shot things at long range, he specifically asks Riot to adjust the damage dropoff for medium-long range shots. This is especially important when you consider the first round of every Valorant match is a pistol round.

The final adjustment that TenZ believes Riot has to implement is with zipwires. He has found out the hard way that when using the ziplines players have nearly perfect accuracy, again something that is both unrealistic and will give players easy kills if they take to the high ground.

Just to cement his case even further, he drops some videos showing exactly what he means in the comments, making his argument bulletproof (literally).

It’ll be interesting to see whether or not Riot takes these points into consideration on their next patch, or whether they’ll be dismissed as just a pro player having a good old Twitter rant.

Hopefully, this gets sorted as it makes the game a nightmare to play and will cause many a player to call it quits. We’ll see what happens in patch 1.13, but hopefully, it’ll be a lucky patch for TenZ.
